Last night I had to go to the Elementary School for the PTO Board meeting.
Honestly? I'm still a little confused about what my role is. I just basically sat there and smiled politely and I have no idea what they are talking about. I mean, I read the notes and I really do try to keep up with what's going on, but since it was my very first meeting? Well, I don't know. I just nodded and smiled, which I am very good at.
After the meeting, I saw my daughter's teacher in the hall. I said hello and she smiled broadly and said:
"Girl Child is very excited about going to Disney World."
And I really wanted to say, "OH MY SWEET LORD! SO AM I! I JUST CAN'T WAIT! IT'S ONLY TWENTY-THREE DAYS AWAY!"
But yeah. I'm an adult and "responsible" and "not a huge freak" or whatever, so I said, "Oh, I know! Well, that's probably my fault. I booked the trip in May and in hindsight I should have waited to tell them until closer to the trip."
She laughed and said, "Somehow, and I don't know how she does it, she manages to work her trip into her writing every day."
I laughed too.
Then? I came home and took a look at her daily work.

I love cats. They are furry. Cats are nice and soft. If I had a cat I would have to board her before I go to Disney World on October 21st. I am very excited about going to Disney World.

Topic: The Tennessee River
The Tennessee River is very wet. It is very long. The Tennessee River is in Tennessee. It is not in Florida. Disney World is in Florida. So is Mickey.

Topic: Marco Polo
Marco Polo was an explorer. He did not discover Disney World.
Really. What on Earth would I do without her?
That girl knows what is important in life.
